15 Jun Memories: Grand Opening
Newport Car Museum followed its Thursday opening with an evening party for the Hospitality Industry and a Saturday night party for VIPs and all who helped make the vision of the Newport Car Museum a reality.
David Rose, a motorsports enthusiast, writer and race car driver from New York, summed up the fun in his Facebook posting:
“Last week the brand-new Newport Car Museum opened, and it’s fabulous…. I had the pleasure of attending the museum’s opening party and it was a blast…over 50 mid-century classic cars (mostly American) were set among period furniture items and automobile art. The evening was first class with outstanding food, cocktails and a Motown-themed band (how appropriate considering the Detroit iron on display) that was outstanding. They certainly know how to throw a party…. If you love cars you must visit this great museum…
